    Default Tofu isn't bad for dogs...is it?

    I was cooking in the kitchen this afternoon and my dogs were begging for a taste...I sliced off a small piece of uncooked tofu for them to try, thinking they'd hate it and therefore leave me alone .

    They went CRAZY for it. I couldn't believe how much they liked it, so I crumbled up a handful for each of them. It can't hurt them, can it?

    Sorry if this is a dumb thread!

    Not dumb at all!

    I just gave my dog some soy crumbles yesterday. When I make dinner I add anything to her dinner that seems interesting (she has very little appetite, so we coax her a bit)--plain pasta, brown rice, plain chicken, plain veggies--pretty much anything except dairy (dogs are basically lactose intolerant, or so I've read) and sauces. Boy, that was a great sentence. Anyway, she liked the soy and I haven't seen any adverse effects. I know there's vegetarian dog food, and I imagine it must have soy protein in it, and tofu and soy are plant-based products, so I think you're in good shape.

    This is all based on reading and random impressions, so someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I don't think so. My dog will have a nibble once in a while and he seems to do fine. He likes the taste.
